    A fitting home for Hamline's nationally ranked legal education

    The School of Law Building is an award-winning architectural landmark. The 75,000 square-foot building, designed by Hammel Green and Abrahamson, Inc. was selected as one of Minnesota’s 1981 Architectural Award Winners. The building is also included in the American Institute of Architects' Guide to the Twin Cities, where it earns praise as a "muscular piece of modernism..."

    The building offers a complete range of amenities for law students, including classrooms, bookstore, law library, lounges, and all administrative offices (including Admission, Registrar, and Dean's Office).
